Mobile phone buyback and recycling company e-Cycle collaborates with prominent financial institution to donate more than $44 thousand dollars for Charlotte Hospital

Charlotte, NC, October 14, 2011 – e-Cycle LLC, a wireless asset recovery and recycling company based in Columbus, Ohio, made an anonymous donation of $44,687 to Levine Children’s Hospital on behalf of a prominent financial intuition yesterday. Partnering with e-Cycle, the organization raised the funds for this charitable contribution through a mobile recycling program.

The check was presented to Mark Griffith with Carolinas HealthCare Foundation during the Levine Children’s Hospital Charity Golf Tournament at the Old Sycamore Golf Plantation. e-Cycle purchased and recycled thousands of used mobile devices from the anonymous institution and was asked to donate the revenues to the hospital.

“We are honored to benefit from e-Cycle’s generosity,” said Mark Griffith with Carolinas HealthCare Foundation.  “Thanks to the continuing support of great companies like e-Cycle, Levine Children’s Hospital is able to provide the absolute best medical care to children and families, close to home.”

According to e-Cycle founder and CEO Christopher Irion, many of e-Cycle’s enterprise clients are seeking new, inventive ways to give back to the community. He said that wireless recycling offers a convenient and rewarding way to raise money for charity while protecting the environment as well as the company bottom line.
